How Horsefly’s Talent Analytics Backs General Talent Acquisition ROI Metrics

Talent Acquisition looking at ROI metrics

The modern talent market is more competitive than ever, and many organizations are doing all they can to simply recruit the right talent to fill the open seats in their organization. However, too few organizations take the time to understand whether their recruitment processes, tools, and overall strategy are as effective and efficient as they can and should be. 

For organizations familiar with measuring and tracking their recruitment operations, each likely has its own set of established benchmarks designed to measure the efficiency of their recruitment operations and understand the return on investment stemming from said efforts. 

For practitioners who are looking to establish the initial internal infrastructure to support such activity within their own organization, Horsefly Analytics’s Global Labor Market Intelligence platform can provide you with essential talent market data to help inform and set expectations at the outset.

Defining General TA ROI Metrics

General Talent Acquisition ROI Metrics refer to measurements that organizations can track over time to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of their recruiting practices.

Relevance to the Organization

As businesses continue to look for cost optimization opportunities, Talent Acquisition leaders are looking for ways to quantify their value to the organization, but also to identify opportunities to promote greater efficiency within their operations. In order to accomplish such a task, leaders can leverage data to establish internal and external benchmarks, identify areas of improvement, and measure progress over time. 

Furthermore, as companies revise existing processes, implement new tools, or iterate upon go-to-market recruitment strategies, they can compare current data points to those of the past to evaluate any potential efficiency gains as a result of revised processes. 

Identifying what to measure can often be the hardest part, as every search is nuanced, with its own unique challenges and circumstances. However, despite the variability in positions and functional areas that talent acquisition teams may operate, virtually all open roles share some of the most basic components that can be utilized to assess overall efficiency and effectiveness (e.g., start date, end date, fiscal requirements of recruitment, talent funnel demographics, etc.). By combining these core search components with basic workforce descriptives, we can empower Talent Acquisition leaders with powerful insights to begin to quantify and evaluate their operational effectiveness.

How Horsefly Can Help
